I just wanted to show off my new brew rig that is finished with the exception of the gas manifolds and pump splash shield. A buddy of mine billygoat1, a lurker on this forum also did all of the welding for me in my driveway. He will be building his own rig next since he is done experimenting on mine. The steel is all 1 1/2" x 3" x 1/8"
I could not have completed this project without a ton of research on this board and others. From a simple jig for cutting my keggle to design options and materials. Thanks to all who posted their ideas, successes and pitfalls.
Here is what we had after a long day of cutting, welding, and changing plans.
If I were to do it all over again I would have just bought the bajo burners without the stands and saved some money.
Added some solid rubber wheels from an old tractor so I can move the rig around like a wheel barrow. Two keggles will fit on the bottom shelf between the burners.
There is a lot of talk on this forum about the differences between propane and natural gas orifices so here is a side by side pic. The NG is on the right.
Here it is all painted up, high temp black on the top and regular maroon on the rest.
I needed an insulated shelf for my cooler MLT so I used a piece of 3/8" cement backer board under some aluminum diamond plate.
One last pic of the rig while testing the burner today. Suggestions and comments are welcomed.
